Open Day!

Thu 17th Jan 2019

BCFU and GMB Reachout invite you to attend our open day on Friday 15th February, between 10am and 5pm.

The Blackpool Centre for the Unemployed and GMB Reachout project, work together to serve the people of Blackpool, Fylde and surrounding areas, supporting those in need of help through advice, training and support.

Whether you have difficulty filling in benefit forms, feel let down by the welfare system, wish to gain new skills or are looking to re-enter employment- we are here to help.

We have access to a number of different training opportunities, both classroom based and distance learning in Functional Skills Maths and English, IT and computers and care sector courses amongst others. We also offer a workclub to help support you on your back to work journey. For those with benefit queries, we have an advisor available and offer form filling drop in sessions weekly. Workshops around mental health, autism and confidence building are also held regularly.

This is just a snippet of what our centre has to offer. Why not pop along on the day and speak to one of our project team, see exactly what is available or sign up for a course on the day?
